The Sunrise 45m concept is of a long-range displacement yacht capable of accommodating eleven guests in complete comfort, with the ability to be autonomous to the extent of a trans-Pacific crossing or a summer of coastal cruising without refuelling.
Conceived by a highly talented team comprised of an experienced yacht owner, designers, engineers and captains, the culminating vessel design has been meticulously thought through, with large service and storage areas. Areas such as a bilge deck with vast walk-in freezers and fridges as well as dry storage, and a professional stainless steel kitchen modelled on that of a gourmet restaurant.
The interior design has been entrusted to the talented offices of Franck Darnet Design who, although a relative newcomer in motoryacht interiors, has a solid reputation in the large sailing yacht sector, working with prestigious architects such as Philippe Briand.
Four roomy guest cabins, all with en-suite shower rooms are served by a spacious lobby, which for the ultimate convenience incorporates its own fridge and icemaker.
On the main deck, the owner’s suite as well as a stunning bedroom and huge bathroom, also features an office and walk-in closet. The formal dining room seats twelve and the intimate lower salon, which opens aft onto the main deck lounge area has a full wet bar and comfortable lounge couches.
The bridge deck accommodates the fully GMDSS equipped wheelhouse, captain’s cabin, ship’s office and a vast upper salon-sky lounge, also with a large wet bar for entertaining. The aft bridge deck has lounging chairs and a more al-fresco style dining area, again for twelve.
The sun deck has another full guest dining area, served by a large barbecue as well as a pantry and food lift from the galley and the six-person jacuzzi is surrounded by a large cushioned sunbathing surface for spreading out to dry off or just to get a tan.
With the prime focus on the visual effect and creation of spatial awareness throughout the yacht, Franck Darnet Design has designed varying options for the Sunrise 45 interiors, from modern clean to a rich classic gentleman’s club feel.
In the living area, the vast windows allow panoramic views of the ocean or of your latest beautiful anchorage. Between the main lounge and the formal dining area, here the interior options either create a striking open layout, or a more intimate classic dining room setting and here the furniture can discretely house a large flat screen television.
The Owner’s Suite, a magnificent spacious area complete with its own lounge corner to allow quiet relaxation, a huge walk in wardrobe/dressing room and a separate study to allow a quiet space for work, away from the guest party while still allowing uncompromised ocean views.
To complete this suite, the elegant full width bathroom as you would expect has conveniently two vanitory areas, two wc rooms, one with shower cubicle, which can be separated by sliding doors on either side of a gorgeous bath. The different interior propositions, classic or contemporary, developed for the Sunrise 45 offer prospective owners a choice characterised by a particular selection of wood, fabrics and furniture.
All the systems engineering, including 3-D engine room and piping throughout the boat, is provided by Valentijn Design of Holland, who have worked with the most prestigious shipyards of Holland, Europe and the world. Electrical and PLC/monitoring engineering is by Schneider-Télémécanique industrial specialist Actys of France who have developed a rugged and trustworthy fully classified power management and monitoring system for a dozen large yachts. Local classification coordination and production engineering is assumed by the competent team of Karatas Yacht Design of Tuzla/Istanbul, who have fifteen years of local knowledge.
